Rococo is a luxury chocolate brand founded in London in 1983. The company have recently launched a range of chocolate bars inspired by author Roald Dahl. As part of the Roald Dahl 100 festivities, Rococo Chocolates has created this special range of Artisan bars celebrating  the genius of the world’s No.1 storyteller. Inspired by Roald Dahl’s incredible tales, each bar is Rococo’s flavourful take on key tastes from the books.

Chantal Coady OBE, founder, owner and creative director of Rococo chocolates, has been a lifelong fan of Roald Dahl ever since she was given the book Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by her father, who brought it back from New York in the ‘60s, when it was first published, and has had an formative influence on her life in chocolate ever since. 

There are 8 bars in the Roald Dahl range each inspired by a different book. The company where kind enough to send me four of the bars from the range. The bars retail at £5.95 on the Rococo website.

Check out the range here:

 Bruce Bogtrotter's Chocolate Fudge Cake Dark Chocolate Bar:

Inspired by Roald Dahl’s ‘Matilda’, this dark milk chocolate 55% cocoa bar has pieces of chocolate and vanilla fudge for an extra indulgent treat, just like Trunchbull’s cake. This chocolate bar is made from Rococo’s 65% cocoa house dark chocolate blended with caramel milk chocolate, with rich chocolate and vanilla fudge pieces and a hint of apricot. 

Rococo & Roald Dahl: Bean's Cider Milk Chocolate Bar:

Our Bean’s Cider bar, inspired by Dahl’s ‘Fantastic Mr Fox’ is made from our own house blend of 40% cocoa milk chocolate, which contains cocoa beans from our own Grococo farm in northern Grenada, with apple. This chocolate bar is made from Rococo’s 40% cocoa house blend of creamy milk chocolate refreshingly infused with tart apple.  “Oh Foxy, it’s…like drinking sunbeams and rainbows!”.

Rococo & Roald Dahl: George's Marvellous Medicine White Chocolate Bar:

Inspired by Roald Dahl’s ‘George’s Marvellous Medicine’, this creamy white chocolate bar is packed with the aniseed flavours of liquorice and fennel. This chocolate bar is made from White chocolate with liquorice and fennel seeds giving it a delicious and marvellously ‘medicinal’ twist. The perfect antidote!

Rococo & Roald Dahl: James' Scrumptious Peach White Chocolate Bar:

Inspired by 'James and the Giant Peach', this creamy white chocolate bar is packed with fruity peach flavour with chia seeds for a crunchy texture. This bar is made from Melt-in-the mouth creamy white chocolate bar is packed with fruity peach and scattered with chia seeds for an extra crunch.

I have loved trying these beautifully packaged chocolate bars and thank Britta at Gersten PR for sending me them to try.

Which was your favourite Roald Dahl storybook as a child? 

Do you have a favourite childhood story you would love to see turned into a chocolate bar?

That's all for for now, Amber xox :)
